Byron, GA (July 31, 2020) — A motorcyclist died Thursday night after striking a pickup truck while allegedly trying to avoid a traffic stop. The crash happened at the intersection of Highway 49 and Houston Lake Road.
According to the Georgia State Patrol, the motorcyclist, identified as Deandre Reynolds, was driving at a high speed in the northbound lanes of the highway when the Peach County Sheriff’s Office attempted to stop him. Reynolds then led police on a chase into Houston County.
Following the pursuit, a man identified as Tavarous Williams was driving south in his Ford pickup truck when he attempted to make a turn onto Houston Lake Road. Reynolds collided with the pickup truck and was later pronounced dead at the scene.
Georgia State Patrol found in its preliminary investigation that Reynolds wasn’t in sight of the Peach County Sheriff’s Office when he crashed into the truck. They are still trying to determine what caused Reynolds to run into the truck.
